Wedge Quilts for everyone!

I gave my first webinar this week and it was so fun! During the webinar I showed these quilt tops (still in need of quilting!) and explained how I made them with wedge rulers.






If you're a member of the MQG you can see the archived webinar on the MQG community site. I currently have some adventurous pattern testers taking a crack at that star quilt at the top, I'm interested to see how it goes for them!

I really hope to start seeing more quilters play with wedges. They are truly fun, and generally simpler than they look. If you make some wedge quilts I hope you'll share them with me!

These are all so gorgeous! I can't wait to catch up on some deadlines then watch the webinar later while I sew :-)

I love each of these! I have never made a wedge block/quilt! After seeing these, I am getting that tingle of wanting to try it sooner rather than later!!

I really enjoyed the webinar. It's inspired my next quilting project!!! You also had shown us a grey background quilt that you had used the corner cut technique. Any chance you could post that photo?

So inspired by the webinar, I've already ordered my wedge ruler!!!

I hope you do more webinars. They seem like a great way to have live interactive instruction. Yay for you!

I like circular wedge quilts like these.A few years ago I followed a pattern for a 'colour wheel' quilt, with 52 different coloured and patterned fabrics. I had very little previous quilting or sewing experience and it turned out really nice. It wasn't too hard, either. I added spiral quilting and I really liked the effect.

Hello - I have just found you and your wonderful work! Love the wedges - very inspiring! I'm a member of MQG and clicked on the webinar, but it says it is audio only; just black screen? Not very inspiring :( Was this how it is meant to be?

Do you have a recommendation for the wedge ruler to get the larger circles?

Your tutorial was very inspiring. I just bought my wedge ruler and hope to give it a try soon. Thank you!
